Easily one of the most recognizable names in the automotive world, Lamborghini has stood for power, speed, style, performance and comfort since releasing their first models in the mid-1960s. Today, the Lamborghini line stands as the ultimate expression of high performance vehicles using the latest technology to augment their already impressive reputation.
In 1966, the Miura sports coupe represented the breakthrough that Lamborghini needed to establish itself as one of the premiere high performance vehicles of the era with a rear mid-engine coupled with rear wheel drive. By the end of the decade, Lamborghini was considered one of the premiere high performance auto companies. However, the oil crisis of 1973 signaled a downturn of interest in high performance vehicles and the company struggled for years, changing ownerships and meeting with mediocre sales until the late 1990s when Audi bought the firm and sales began rising over the next decade.
Lamborghini autos have been noted for their large engine bay design that sports powerful, high performance engines such as the vaunted V12. The sleek appearance is augmented by the emphasis on using high quality parts and expert manufacturing techniques. While the current economic situation in the US and Europe has dampened the sales of Lamborghini vehicles, the overall health of the company remains strong thanks to celebrated vehicles include the most-produced Lamborghini ever, the Gallardo and the current flagship of the line, the Aventador.
The Carbon Fiber Revolution
One of the biggest developments for high performance vehicles such as the Lamborghini line has been the introduction of carbon fiber auto parts. The advancement of the twill weave construction of carbon fiber has allowed for the creation of auto parts that are stronger, yet much lighter than their traditional steel counterparts. Today, the number of auto parts manufactured from carbon fiber includes the following; Air Scoop, Door Pillars, Diffuser, Spoiler, Wing, Mirror Covers, Engine Cover, Dash Panel, Eye Lids & More.
Lamborghini Accessories and Parts in Carbon fiber are generally twice as strong as steel, yet are only 1/4th the weight. Such parts can not only improve the speed of the vehicle, but the torque, handling and overall performance as well. In addition, carbon fiber auto parts are more impact resistant than steel, making them more durable in low speed collisions. The Lamborghini represents the ultimate in high performance vehicles and the emphasis on performance, style and speed will remain the benchmarks for all automakers for years to come.
Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra
The new Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse has just been unveiled to the public. Named after the motorsport department at Lamborghini, this new model sports a number of new features, including a unique, quick-release engine cover, a very prominent rear wing, gloss black accents, tri-color striping and the addition of carbon fiber parts and components to increase performance, speed and handling in this unique automotive design.
Set to make its debut at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show, the new Gallardo 570-4 Squadra Corse has already garnered attention for its use of lighter-weight materials while maintaining the power and speed of high performance vehicles.

There is little doubt that carbon fiber components have altered the way manufacturers of high performance vehicles such as the new Gallardo LP 570-4 Squadra Corse. The carbon fiber trim, alloy pedals and Alcatara-wrapped dashboard are just a few of the areas where the vehicle has been reduced in weight, but not in safety or strength.
The rear wing and quick release hood are crafted from carbon fiber, a material that when fashion with a twill weave is twice as strong as steel, yet is less than 1/4th the overall weight. Plus, carbon fiber auto parts are more impact resistant as well. In addition, more aluminum was used in the construction of this vehicle to bring the weight down even more.
Carbon fiber parts have become far more commonplace in recent years. In fact, many aftermarket parts are crafted from carbon fiber, which include the following that are used on high performance vehicles;
Air Intake Box
Air Scoop Duct
Interior Dash Panel
Rear Bumper Diffuser
Door Pillars Panel
Interior Door Panels
Engine Bay Covers
Mirror Shell Covers
Front & Rear Spoiler
Wing & More
For the new Gallardo model, the carbon fiber is included in the door panels, racing seats and center console. Along with the handbrake frame, the lower rim of the steering wheel, the trim around the instrument panels, door handles and even the handle of the glove box are crafted from carbon fiber.
The inclusion of carbon fiber parts has reduced the overall weight to 2,954 lbs. which helps bolster the power and performance of the V10 engine sitting in a large engine bay that generates 570hp. Going from 0 to 62mph is just 3.4 seconds, the top speed of the new Gallardo is a remarkable 199mph thanks in part to the new six-speed e-gear transmission.
Additional Features of the Gallardo 570-4
This new transmission system shifts faster than any professional driver could dream and helps bolster the overall performance of this vehicle. The carbon-ceramic braking system is also quite potent as well, delivering unmatched stopping power to the vehicle. Future models may include the pin stripe option and other features that add to the value, luxury and performance of the vehicle.
Featuring superb handling, unmatched braking and overall top of the line performance, the Lamborghini Gallardo 570-4 Squadra Corse is truly a unique experience in driving, a testament to the power, style, and high quality that reflect the Lamborghini name.
Replacing the famed Murcielago, the new Lamborghini Aventador is the flagship model of perhaps the most famous manufacturer of high performance sports vehicles. Combining all the latest advances in technology into a powerful, sleek vehicle, the Lamborghini Aventador has already made a powerful impact in the automotive world. Initially released in 2011, the Aventador was so anticipated that it Lamborghini had sold well over a years worth of this vehicle before it actually hit the streets.
What is the Lamborghini Aventador?
The very name “Aventador” is that of a bull that fought valiantly in the bull ring back in 1993 in Saragossa, Spain. Inspired by the performance of the bull, Lamborghini decided to name their latest flagship model after it.
Continuing the tradition of creating powerful, high performance vehicles, the engine of Aventador is a 6.5L V12 that was designed in-house. The engine can power the Aventador can go from 0 to 60mph in 2.9 seconds and reach speeds of 217mph. The semi-automatic transmission is only single clutch, but the gear shifts are accomplished in a mere 50 milliseconds.
The exterior is classic Lamborghini with the famous low frame, sleek aerodynamic look that is quite familiar to those who have seen previous versions of this design. The use of lighter-weight materials combined with greater horsepower has led to the Aventador becoming perhaps the most celebrated member of Lamborghini family.
The interior is classic Lamborghini with advanced controls, comfortable materials and easy to read instruments. The combination of the new, sleeker exterior, more powerful engine and advancements in technology has led to the Aventador winning the “Supercar of the Year” in 2011 from Top Gear.
In addition to the standard version, there are four special editions of the Aventador that have been produced;
- Aventador J
- Dreamliner Edition 2012
- Aventador LP 720-4, the 50th Anniversary 2013 edition
